The Predator of Viamão - Video reportage

The Military Police Brigade enters the forest of the Road Branquinha in Viamão. The men have guns, map and GPS. They are in search ofthe animal that killed two dogs and is scaring local residents.





Rodrigo dos Santos, commander of the 2nd Company Environmental ─ We have, as concrete evidences, two dogs killed, who were predated. This draws attention because they are large animals [the dogs].

We need to investigation more to know of what kind of predator we're talking. Unfortunately the ground has been very altered. It has many traces of domestic animals: dogs, horses. It is difficult to identify the specific clue of a wild animal. We will monitor the area more often, including during the night. We will be watching to the roars and other sounds that are scaring the population. There is evidence that it is a large animal, which is a wild animal. Care must be stepped up during the night, especially at dusk.

The enviromental agent advised residents to keep their domestic animals protected, imprisoned or collected close to their resiências. To keep their yards clean, avoid leaving food scraps and remains of animal carcasses exposed. Then, a woman owner of two dogs that were killed, Mrs. Angélica Fritz Montana, appears and says: At night, I hear strange noises and a roars that come from the backyard of my house. The dogs are nervous.

The enviromental agent asks for the people avoid the panic [this is a classic!]. Recommends not try to hunt or kill the beast. Mrs. Angelica turns to say: At five of afternoon I'll go home. I have care of to close the doors and the windows. Realy, sleep during the night is no more possible.


The agent, Mr. Rodrigo says, yet: Our goal is to reassure the people, protect livestock but, also, try to preserve the life of this wild animal. The florestal guard thinks that the beast can be killing to defend itself from attacks by dogs. Domestic dogs are not part of the food chain of any wild animal.

But the theory does not explain why the attacks to the herds were so violent. Why a big feline killed three sheep? The predator has a big eye! Kills more than needed. This doesn't seems a thing of the savage nature. But, maybe, could be a thing of the nature of a insane.
